Did you know it’s now 60% more expensive to get a new customer than it was five years ago?
This is a wake-up call for businesses to reassess their marketing strategies and cut down the customer acquisition costs (CAC).
The Solution? Shifting from broad demand generation strategies to more selective demand methods.
That’s where LinkedIn shines, offering a goldmine of opportunities for precise customer targeting.
In this guide, we’ll dive deep into the world of LinkedIn Ads. You’ll discover how to utilize them effectively and draw in new customers without breaking the bank.
How to Leverage LinkedIn Ads
Tripledart brings you a three-tiered strategy to make the most of LinkedIn Ads without overspending:
Let’s explore each step in detail.
Pinpointing Your Audience: The Core of Effective Campaigns
Understanding who you’re speaking to is paramount.
Dive into the specifics, like job titles and company size, and don't forget the human element—what drives these professionals? Their needs, pain points, etc.
Use these insights to compile an account list or apply stringent native audience filters. This ensures your message lands in front of those who matter the most.
For instance, when targeting IT managers at mid-sized companies, focus on roles like “IT Director” or “Technology Manager”. Dive into their concerns—cybersecurity or keeping tabs on tech developments. Tailor your campaign to address these issues. Plus, apply relevant LinkedIn filters for maximum impact.
Structuring Your Campaign: More Science than Art
No one on LinkedIn looks forward to seeing an ad, let alone clicking on it.
The fix? Leverage LinkedIn Ads to build a brand voice in the minds of your prospects!
Here’s the action plan:
Step 1: Build Brand Voice
Your brand should come across as a familiar friend, offering valuable insights and solutions.
For instance, Wix offers actionable insights on scaling an agency through an easy-to-download e-book.
Step 2: Raise Problem Awareness
Highlight common challenges your audience faces and subtly position your brand as the solution.
Take a look at Synthesized’s ad, which highlights the challenge of handling data for development and testing and subtly positions itself as the solution.
Step 3: Showcase Solution
Now, bring your solutions into the spotlight. How does what you offer solve your audience's problems?
SurveyMonkey, through this ad, focuses on the problem—how to know if your customers are satisfied. And showcases its solutions: getting data, sharing data, and impressing customers.
Step 4: Build Brand Trust
Share testimonials and case studies that foster your brand’s reliability and credibility.
Feathr’s ad shares a case study of how APTE benefitted from its product.
By following these steps, you'll establish a strong brand voice.

Fine-tuning Your Messaging: Speak Their Language
When it comes to messaging, think of it less as selling and more as telling a story. Your story should be compelling, relatable, and, most importantly, useful.
Here’s what to focus on:
- Thought Leadership:
Trust is currency. And how do you earn it? By positioning your brand as a reliable source of knowledge, in other words, a thought leader.
Share insights, tips, and strategies that add value to your audience.
- Problem and solution awareness
How to connect with your audience? Empathize with their problems.
Highlight the challenges your audience faces and communicate how your offerings provide effective solutions.
No one likes a salesy ad! Consider conversational ads to engage your audience more actively.
Also, ensure your messaging is compelling and action-oriented.
Remember, the key is balance!
